I AM CHRISTOPHER LEACH THE ARTIST. I started this blog so that I can share with everyone my vast collection of transport photographs showing a personal and nostalgic view of the industry with images that span some 45 years taking in the U.K and some of Europe. I have no darkroom and so rather than being the perfectionist after tidying them up I upload the images warts and all, and even those that won't scan squarely or are scratched. In a way it adds age and character. You are all free to download these for your personal use but please remember I still own them and you are not just free to use them without prior permission for any knd of publishing. Click on images to enlarge them and if you want to see more leave your comments or visit my website for the mother-site with galleries including those Buses & Girls: PICTUREWORLD

Coach Aid to the Rescue

Arriva seems to have a policy of running some of it's older buses regardless of faults just waiting for them to break down in the road like BF52 OAE a Wright bodied VDL seen in Stafford off the 76 Wolverhampton service. Another one has also been running out of Wednesfield Garage with perhaps a loose engine mounting which causes the rear seating to shake violently each time to bus engages gear before pulling away, worse still for other road users there must be a small diesel leak too.
